This in regard to the Northwest Florida Daily News’ mug shot unfairness.
If the person is well known there isn’t a mug shot. If I remember correctly a person recently was indicted for fraud yet no mug shot was provided. If the person is poor and not well known, every detail is written in the mug shot and police blotter. Is the Northwest Florida Daily News protecting some and destroying those less fortunate? Did you publish the guy, well known in Destin, who sells real estate and was arrested for DUI? Do you publish the owners of foreclosed multimillion dollar properties who still do business in our community? Did you publish the well-known developer’s mug shot who went to jail for campaign fraud? Did you publish our current congressional representative’s mug shot, son of a state senator, who was arrested for DUI a few years ago?
Stop the mug shots. These people are innocent until proven guilty. Fair reporting needs to be your value as a news organization.
